Remote Island Custom Home Builds

A remote British Columbia island getaway is a dream come true for many. Building a remote island custom home, however, is an endeavour that comes with many logistical, and potentially expensive, challenges.

That’s why it’s important to find the right design-build construction company. At Blue Water Concepts, we take pride in our ability to turn your dream of island living into a reality.

Offering you exceptional design services and expert craftsmanship, Blue Water Concepts will ensure that your island retreat is functional, compliant with local regulations, and every bit the slice of paradise you imagine.

Here are some of the ways in which we approach building remote island custom homes.

Challenges of Remote Building

Building at a remote site requires a specialized approach to meet the unique challenges inherent to this type of project. Over time, we have developed refined processes that address the specialized logistics, coordination, and scheduling required to complete an island build successfully.

We are proud to say that we own an all-weather aluminum company boat to bring our skilled production team to your lot and have built strong relationships with local suppliers and sub-contractors to deliver your materials carefully and on- time.

Building Energy-Efficient Custom Homes

Environmental stewardship is something we take seriously: it’s a guiding principle at Blue Water Concepts. We specialize in building Passive House and Net Zero homes, designed to minimize energy consumption and maximize sustainability.

Passive House & Net Zero Homes


Passive House is an energy standard designed to achieve very high thermal performance to maintain a consistent, comfortable indoor temperature while relying far less on heating and cooling systems. Some features of these homes include airtight construction, high-performance windows, strategic solar design, and substantial insulation. Designing for natural lighting, shading, and ventilation also plays a part in regulating the temperature, keeping it stable and comfortable. Doing so allows Passive House buildings to reduce energy consumption by as much as 90%, contributing to a significantly lower utility bill, and reduced carbon footprint.


While Passive House projects offer a sustainable and low-carbon approach to home-building through heightened efficiency, Net Zero homes seek to incorporate renewable energy systems to achieve carbon neutrality on their energy consumption.

Expertise in Local Bylaws and Restrictions

Having a building site in a remote location often involves local regulations and restrictions that must be understood and respected. Our extensive experience allows you to rest easy knowing that all applicable regulations are being followed. There are many different coastal regions with their own zoning bylaws, environmental regulations, and bureaucratic processes, and a custom home builder who is familiar with these rules is an easy way to save time and money.

From understanding land use restrictions to submitting your permit applications, our team will guide you through the process to ensure that your dream home is built in compliance, and without wasting time navigating the ins and outs of various local governments.

In-House Design Services

Your home should reflect your personality and your lifestyle. Our in-house design services can help you achieve this. From the initial concept to breaking ground, our team will work with you to create a home that speaks to you as an individual. One of the other benefits of working with an in-house design team is the continuity between your design and your build teams.

Typically, these professions exist primarily separated from one another, despite working in the same industry, and even for the same client. Communication breakdown, scheduling delays, and competing interests are classic construction complications – all of which can be entirely avoided if the professionals on the job work on the same team and towards the same goal.
